Answer: Under Kuwait labour law it is only the father who is allowed to be sponsor of members of the family. However in rare and special occasions, women are allowed to sponsor children on compassionate grounds. However for this to happen, the directorgeneral of immigration must okay it. We therefore propose that you seek audience with the directorgeneral, put your cast before him and if you are lucky you will be given an exemption and be allowed to be the sponsor of your children.
